Do you know any adult who likes a lollipop? Or even a kid? Why are they invented? And who invented it? I think it’s a stupid invention.October 23, 2014 3:14 am at 3:14 am #1039700

I think it’s a brilliant invention. It brings fun into mundane acts like eating, and gets kids to eat.October 23, 2014 5:48 am at 5:48 am #1039703
Huh? How can you ask such a question? Do you actually know any actual KIDS? Most children like lollipops. As for adults, they’re just hard candy on a stick – if you’d eat a regular sour ball or whatever then the only thing wrong with a lolly is the immaturity factor. (Not that that would bother a lot of CR members, but I’m just sayin’.)
I regularly eat the purple lollies from the assortment because my kids prefer the other colors.October 23, 2014 4:16 pm at 4:16 pm #1039704
Kids are young goats. They are not allowed to eat lollipops.October 24, 2014 3:33 am at 3:33 am #1039705
Hmph! You never heard anybody refer to children as ‘kids’? And I thought that goats could eat whatever they want.
I think to OP was just in a BAD mood and decided to post a thread deriding something inherently likeable – lollies – just to get on our nerves.
Or else there is some type of secret code meaning that only specific CR members know.October 26, 2014 1:01 am at 1:01 am #1039706
Goats can eat almost anything, but they can also get sick afterward. And I was kidding.October 26, 2014 1:36 am at 1:36 am #1039707☕️coffee addictParticipant
so you were being an young goat?October 26, 2014 1:52 am at 1:52 am #1039708Bookworm120Participant
“Do you know any adult who likes a lollipop?”
Well, I know *of* a fictional detective who seemed to really like lollipops.October 26, 2014 3:13 am at 3:13 am #1039709

Lollipops are (to borrow an incredibly annoying, too often employed Americanism) awesome!
They enable sweets to last for longer, by giving the consumer a choice between eating an entire sweet in one go or getting one’s hands dirty.
I know of several instances of them being used by ex-smokers, when standing with existing smokers, to help resist the urge. And by non-smokers to have something to do in similar situations.
They taste better, due to sweets in general being slightly cloying in excess. A lollipop allows for occasional tasting (this is a different point then above, as the first point concerns pure value for money, this point regards the benefits regarding taste).
From my school days, I recall lollipops being far superior to regular sweets in terms of being able to eat them in class. Regular sweets are difficult to conceal.
And staying with the classroom advantages, the paper stick, when the sweet is finished, provides endless amusement, what with being able to unroll it and doodle on it, not to mention pellets.
And lastly, what’s not to like? It’s sugar on a stick.October 26, 2014 5:24 am at 5:24 am #1039711

I saw on a diff web site that when you eat a lollipop, you are really just eating your own flavored saliva.October 26, 2014 5:42 am at 5:42 am #1039715

What?October 26, 2014 5:59 am at 5:59 am #1039718
Am I not “you”?October 26, 2014 6:06 am at 6:06 am #1039720
Am I not “you”?
In that case, it’s hard to understand your question – “Why was a diff web site talking about me?”October 26, 2014 6:07 am at 6:07 am #1039721

Sirvoddmort mentioned lollipops “being used by ex-smokers[…]
to help resist the urge.”
In fact, this was the purpose they were used for by

Is there such a thing as those big massive lollipops I remember when I was a kid I used to dream of getting one of those.October 26, 2014 11:57 am at 11:57 am #1039726ED IT ORParticipant
Dunno if you can still get those ones but you can get a note 4 which is massive and will be updated to LollipopOctober 26, 2014 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1039727Bookworm120Participant
@Randomex – Yes, that’s what I’ve heard about why he used lollipops. Apparently, on Telly (intentional pun), they were also starting to ban depictions of smoking.
Would a better question be “Lollipops – who loves ’em?”October 26, 2014 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #1039728SayIDidIt™Participant

Lollipops keep kids busy for a while and there is not much to them.
Adults have them under two conditions: All their kids are enjoying lollipops, or no one else is around.November 4, 2014 4:24 am at 4:24 am #1039740
Exactly while they eat the lollipop I run away works every timeNovember 5, 2014 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #1039741☕️coffee addictParticipant
why no q?
I wavered. I thought the title made it obvious that it wasn’t a serious thread so the trolling wouldn’t be too out of place. -29
